"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure." Mariane Williamson

You’re not the hero saving the day,
just the coward who runs and hides.
You’re awkward and shy,
And I have to push before you move.

If life were a movie
you wouldn’t have the lead role.
You’d be at the end of the credits
playing a forgotten part.

You’re no Prince Charming
Guess I won’t get that slipper back
happily ever after was too cliché,
at least that’s what you say.

No one expects you to astonish
Most people don’t know you’re there
You sleepwalk through life,
And nobody really cares.

You are no Romeo,
I don’t get a fairy tale romance.
But it’s still love to me.

Feet, what do I need you for if I have wings to fly?

This is well done. Wait no....that sounds like something you'd say about a piece of steak, shoot, now I want some steak. Anywho, I like a bunch! It's a twist on the old told tale of "Romeo". I'm going to be coming around to read your other works pretty often if this is what you present. ^.^ woot! :D

Its only a mistake if you never learn from it.

This is really good. I actually understood what it was about. Which is a hard thing to do when reading and writing poetry. But it speaks to me :D its really pretty.
